Someone perusing my blog for the first time would quickly determine that my approach to "making" is completely scattershot. I cant' seem to focus on one thing for more than 2 days straight. I'm completely OK with that but it must look awfully disorganized from outside my own head. Fortunately I have the space to have several projects easily accessible at any time. It allows me to suddenly feel like doing mosaic or glass or longarming or dyeing or cutting or sewing or.......
work on Ashley's Rainbow quilt.
Truthfully this project is reserved for once a month when I sew with my Country School Quilter friends at the Montpelier Center. That was this weekend so this is the monthly update for this project.
I only got to go on Friday this month because a friend and I went kayaking Saturday at Lake Anna. It was hot as blazes but we had a great time.
I just started working on the Rainbow quilt last month so my time is spent cutting and sewing. I have 50 blocks made so far and I just had to come home to put these on the wall to get an idea of how it will look. My favorite block so far is the 1st one in the second row from the top. I just love the orange/yellow center. I am loving the blend of textures and "solids".
To do cutting at the center I have to take my rulers (because different brands of rulers measure differently) with me so I've decided to go ahead and cut all of the fabrics here. I didn't feel like doing anything else yesterday so I made great progress cutting out the pieces and will have this wrapped up and put away tonight.
I still have to dye the black fabric for the border blocks and cut that but I have a while before I need to make border blocks.
Is this not the pretties trash ever? Plans are formulating for these!
This week is a busy week. I'll be teaching new owners training at The Longarm Network this weekend and have a lot of chores but I'm planning to get in some serious time back at the longarm too and tomorrow I might have the final border idea for the Virginia's Vintage Creeper quilt.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
